    it can be done with yours to some degree, but ultimately a bigger mower will do a better job...what you want to do is go back and forth to create the 'stripe' look...if the grass is long, it becomes difficult. The next time you mow, you can mow perpendicularly to create a checkerboard look. Notice in the picture the stripes carry to the driveway...that shows he drove and turned around on the blacktop for a cleaner look

    thanks for showing us the "whole Picture" haha...Merry Christmas to you too! Here in upstate NY you can do that on many lawns as well...it helps a lot if you do them often in the same pattern for like 1 month, then switch the next
